Posted by wlpo on June 13, 2016

The Ottawa River Rescue, along with Department of Conservation and several other crews worked together in a search with an unfortunate conclusion over the weekend.

A 31-year-old Long Point man’s body was found Sunday after a long search in the Vermilion River near Manville. The Livingston County Coroner’s office says an empty canoe led to the search in and along the river over the weekend.

The body was recovered Sunday night around 7:00 in the area where the canoe was found. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Livingston County Coroner. The coroner has ordered an autopsy, and the incident remains under investigation.

The name of the victim has not yet been released.
